look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

500 ml bottle poured into a tulip glass

A: Pours a honey orange with a bright white creamy full head, lots of lacing, good amount of carbonation, beer is clear, looks solid.

A: Garlic, onion, guayaba, hints of freshly crushed pine needles, slight citrus peel, very aromatic.

T: More citrus forward on the taste, grapefruit zest, pine needles, guayaba, hit of citrus and resin like bitterness in the middle, finish is dry with citrus peel and zest lingering in the aftertaste.

M: Medium bodied mouthfeel with a dry finish.

O: Very tasty, like a subtle Pliny the Elder, very drinkable, very enjoyable, good balance of citrus and pine notes, dry finish, a world class IPA.
